Tesla Self-Driving Car Accidents

When Tesla first launched its self-driving Autopilot system, people were excited, and understandably so. Who doesn’t love the idea of watching TV or catching up on sleep while their car drives them around? It sounds like something out of “The Jetsons.”

Tragically, self-driving Teslas have been involved in several deadly accidents over the past few years, raising questions about Autopilot’s safety, Tesla’s marketing language, and the discrepancy between the two.

  • The Problem With Self-Driving Cars

    When you hear the term “Autopilot,” you probably picture a plane flying itself, the pilot relaxing, or maybe not even in the cockpit. Or maybe you imagine a self-driving car, its driver snoozing in the backseat. Therein lies the problem: Words like “Autopilot,” “self-driving,” and “autonomous” all seem to suggest that these cars drive themselves. The reality, though, can be quite different.

    There are several conditions under which the driver of a self-driving car should keep their hands on the wheel, or at least pay attention to the road. The car’s speed, location, and other factors can greatly influence how effective it can be in self-driving mode. In short, these cars are not fully autonomous—but many people don’t realize that. For many, the self-driving aspect of the car was the main selling point.

    This gulf, between what Autopilot can do and what people think it can do, has already contributed to a series of fatal crashes.

  • Self-Driving Tesla Accidents

    A rash of accidents involving Teslas outfitted with Autopilot have given drivers and regulators cause for concern:

    • On January 18, 2020, in Pleasanton, California, a Tesla Model S jumped a curb, slammed into a brick wall, and caught fire, killing its driver.
    • On December 29, 2019, in Gardena, California, a Tesla Model S ran a red light, smashed into a Honda Civic, and killed two people.
    • Incredibly, the same day (December 29, 2019), on Interstate 70 near Terre Haute, Indiana, a Tesla Model 3 hit a parked fire truck and killed the driver’s wife.
    • On March 1, 2019, near Delray Beach, Florida, a Tesla Model 3 on Autopilot crashed into a tractor-trailer while traveling at 68 miles per hour. The driver was killed.
    • In October 2018, a Florida man’s Model S failed to detect a car disabled on the side of the highway and smashed into it at 80 miles per hour. The driver, Shawn Hudson, suffered severe injuries as a result. Morgan & Morgan filed a lawsuit against Tesla on his behalf.
    • On March 23, 2018, on Route 101 in California, a Tesla Model X P100D collided with a safety barrier and caught fire. The driver died from injuries sustained in the crash.
  • Self-Driving Car Accident Lawsuits

    If you or a loved one suffered injuries in an accident involving a self-driving Tesla, you could be owed compensation for the following:

    • Funeral expenses

Jerri
Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
